Applications are particularly welcome and encouraged from female candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the School of Geography and the Environment.

This post, which will be based at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford, is a full time, five-year departmental appointment with no formal college association, though informal relationships may be established on an individual basis.
